Disabled RSCS wait IThe VM/370 Control program does not allow a
virtual machine to enter a disabled wait
state or certain program loops. Instead, CP issues one of the following messages: DMKDSP450W CP ENTERED; DISABLED WAIT PSW DMKDSP451W CP ENTERED; INVALID PSW DMKDSP452W CP ENTERED; EXTERNAL INTERRUPT LOOP DMKDSP453W CP ENTERED; PROGRAM INTERRUPT LOOP A PSW enabled for I/O interrupts is loaded.

state by CP issuing the message DMKDSP450W CP ENTERED; DISABLED WAIT PSW If, in addition, the .essage DMTINI402T IPL DEVICE READ I/O ERROR appears on the RSCS console, an unrecover­
able error has occurred while reading the RSCS nucleus fro. DASD storage. RSCS enters a disabled wait state with a code
of 011 in the PSW. If a program check occurs before the
program check handler is activated, RSCS enters a disabled wait state with a code of 007 in the PSW. Figure 2. VM/370 Problem Types (Part 5 of 6) 12 IBM 9h/37G System programmer·s Guide

ANALYZING THE PROBLEM Once the type of problem is identified, its cause must be determined.
There are recommended procedures to follow. These procedures are
helpful, but do not identify the cause of the Froblem in every case. fe resourceful. Use whatever data you have available. If the cause of the
problem is not found after the recommended debugging procedures are
followed, it may be necessary to undertake the tedious job of
The section "How To Use VM/370 Facilities To Debug" describes
procedures to follow in determining the cause of various problems that
can occur in the Control Program or in the virtual machine. See the VM/370 £MS for information on using VM/370 facilities to
debug a problem program.
